Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy is an all natural regenerative procedure which is an excellent alternative to surgery. Stem cell therapy is a great option for those with pain from degenerative disc disease, orthopedic injuries and all sorts of shoulder, hip, elbow, knee, ankle and joint pains. Using stem cells obtained from your own body, we are able to mimic your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma is a safe and natural treatment that utilizes the patient's own blood to stimulate healing in one’s body. This process, which is done in our own office, is used to promote healing in patients with injuries in their cartilage, ligaments, muscles, tendons and more.
Prolotherapy promotes long term and permanent pain relief by stimulating the bodies ability to repair itself. There are many different types of conditions that respond well to prolotherapy, such as facet joint syndrome, joint sprains, degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, sprains, tendonitis, and more!. Dr. Todd Koppel, our board certified pain management specialist, can determine if you are a candidate for this healing solution.
Everyone has heard of Stem Cells (undifferentiated cells which can become any other type of cell), but what are Exosomes? Exosomes are vesicles much smaller than cells (approx 1000x smaller), that cells generate to communicate with one another. They contain proteins, cytokines (molecules which aid in inflammation, and trauma), and nuclear material. Exosomes have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, and aid in the deterioration, healing, and regeneration of injured tissues.
There are many benefits of utilizing Exosomes over Stem Cells in regenerative injection therapy. First, they are externally derived, so bone marrow aspiration is unnecessary. This avoids an additional, potentially uncomfortable component of the therapy. Second, as the quantity and quality of stem cells decrease in people with age, they become less effective over time. Lastly, they may function better, being able to cross cellular barriers more easily, and adapt into the inflammatory environment better than stem cells.
